Dwight Howard to Nets

The oddsmakers believe Orlando’s Dwight Howard is on his way to the Brooklyn Nets, prompting them to slash the Nets odds of winning in the East from 20/1 to 10/1.  Sportsbook had already moved the odds down to 9/2.


Only the Miami Heat had better odds of winning the East than the Nets while the Bulls were listed at the same price. 

RJ Bell of Pregame.com tweeted Monday:

Vegas believes Howard to #Nets talk. Title odds via @LVSuperbook have moved from 20/1 to 10/1 on expectation alone.

The Nets chances of landing Dwight Howard are better than even, league sources told the New York Post on Monday.

From The Post:

In a scenario that has “a lot of moving parts,” the Nets are pushing forward, continuing to make progress in their attempts to land Orlando’s superstar center and assemble an Olympic-style team of their own in Brooklyn, sources maintained. Up to 14 players and four teams would be involved. Howard to the Nets, Brook Lopez in a sign and trade to Orlando and Kris Humphries in a similar scenario to Cleveland.

This is a fluid situation that could change rapidly.
